Played Orks Versus Space Marines. I lost but I did much better than I was doing.

Last round, 30 ork boys two close combat weapons each, assault 5 space marine scouts, armed with sniper rifles. Open ground, I'm able to get all thirty within two inches.:) I have ninety attacks on the assault. Scouts attack, no wounds, I'm happy. I assumed my ninety attacks would be sufficient to kill the five models and get a draw on objectives. However, My boys failed to roll above a 2 on all ninety attacks.:confused:

Its my first time playing Orcs, does this happen on a regular basis? Or am I just that unlucky?

Wow!!!!! I have a friend that has no luck but 90 dice!!! Where you using round edged dice?

Unlucky. There's something wrong when 90 attacks fail to even get past one test...

Bad things do happen. 3 LR's do get smoked by Lascannons on the first turn. An entire Deathwing army does DS completely off the board.

Just stick together.

I believe that the Dice Gods were not smiling on you this day... It's a matter of odds and a bit of luck... It happens, but not all the time, I've had the same thing happen with my guard firing their lasguns - 4 or better needed to hit, nothing higher than a 3 on something like 60 shots...

That is seriously unlucky. So unlucky, it has probably never happened before, and will never happen again.

Chance of not rolling above a 2 on 90 out of 90 dice is roughly 10 ^-43

i.e.1/1, followed by 43 zeros
i.e. 1/10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 ,000

That sort of thing happens. The first time I played with my Sisters I rolled eleven 1's and 2' the first time I tried to make armor saves (I play Guard so armor saves are a rarity for me). As was said, it's quite rare but such freakish examples of bad luck do happen.

Well after looking at the codex I realized I actually had 120 attacks. Since boys have a base 2 not one. Though the whole game was kinda against me. First turn I lost my two deff dreds to a droppod sternguard squad. 3 turn his assault terminators massacred my warboss and his nob squad. 40 attacks rerolling to hit and to wound. It kinda sucked, I'm really starting to hate Black Templars

Hellebore
13-12-2009, 02:39
Not quite as bad as that but I had two seperate units of wulfen cause 36 wounds on the same 5 deathwing terminators one turn after the other and they passed all 72 saves...

Ok mine isn't that big of a fail but it truely surprised me when it happened, a bunch of sternguards deepstrike beside my squad of 10 immortals, shot 5 down with their combi-plasma (which is quite an odd choice), forced a leadership test, I roll 2 sixes, the whole squad run off the board....

I had Yriel in a full-sized Dire Avenger squad who got shot at by a Razorback with heavy bolters. Three shots, three hits, three wounds, no saves. I'll just take three Avengers, I think, and not put a wound on Yriel. I won't fail an LD10 test, right? Wrong. Not only do I fail the test, but I am "escorted" off the table by a bloody Drop Pod.

13-12-2009, 07:13
my worse was i lost 23 marines and 4 terms to about 50 lasgun shots. most of them were at max range. right before that i got shot by two leman russ demolishers with plasma cannons and 12 lascannons and a single terminator died.

1 game, 2 Chaos Lords with DWs, 8 rounds of CC each (Played against Deamons, got into combat in turn 2). Total number of attacks: 0. 16 Rolls for the DW attacks and 16 1s...

13-12-2009, 14:15
I lost a 6-man Thousand Sons squad to 3 Rhino-mounted Storm Bolters.

Not a game fail, but my cousin broke GW Manchester's 40k scale Warlord Titan. That's Epic banhammer if nothing else...

I was playing as standard Marines versus a Black Templar force at 500 points. The player was courteous, kind, and no slouch, so we played a tactically fierce and very humorous game over which the course of, he never managed to fail a single saving throw, and I never managed to pass one.

Literally, the only model I took out of action was a single marine from a Crusader squad in the open with a Krak Missile. Everything else was just horror!

wow ive never had t roll more than 40 dice at once but that needed both hands n they were full but how the hell do you roll 90+? :confused:
My epic win (well fail for my opponent) was 5 necron warriors getting charged by a squad of fully kitted out genesteler 10 man squad and surviving and finally wiping out the squad 3 turns later :chrome:

Epic fail: One game I had a crusherfex charge a land raider. 7 attacks autohitting, 2 pens, double ones for damage.

Epic win: In a different game I was using my wolves with the fifth ed book for the second time. Turn 2 comes around and I shoot 3 missiles from my long fangs at my opponent's devs. All 21 hits, 12 wounds, and all that remained was a single ML and two ablative wound marines from a full 10 man dev unit with 4 MLs. To make things worse for my opponent, he fired everything in his army at one of my units that was in area terrain and I managed to pass every save for that turn. All 30+ 3+ saves. Considering my dice tend to hate everything (In my last nid game my enemy used my dice to roll saves for 6 sternguard and the last wound on Pedro. There were no survivors.) it was pretty surprising.

My Raptors seem to "epic fail" all the time. Some highlights of their hall of shame:

- They failed to hurt a Leman Russ despite 6 point-blank meltagun shots before the Russ finished them off (the last 2 shots were attempted while falling back, admittedly).

- They snuck onto the board to hide from the enemy, only one land speeder with only a heavy bolter could trace LOS to one of them. Two hits, two wounds, two failed saves and yep, they run off the board.

- A squad of five raptors were skulking around behind my defiler. My defiler takes a lascannon hit. It explodes, the raptors are hit and... all five die.

Then again, perhaps the epicest failure was when I teleported my 6mm terminators on turn three, poised to obliterate my opponent's rearguard on his blitz but, because I had already taken an activation that turn, rolled a "1" to activate and cost me the game. Epic epic fail fail. :angel::D:skull:

My most epic fails have been with my deathwing against my little brothers IG. First up a 6 man IG command squad all arm with las pistols took out a 5 man unit of my deathwing that had an apothecary in. That same game Belial, armed with lightning claws, charged the IG officer failed all the hit rolls and the officer, armed with a chainsword!, made all his hit and wound rolls and I failed all the saves. Again. Another time my unit of veterans blew up his chimera with a power fist and the resulting blast killed the whole unit. And in our latest game I charged 5 ordinary guardmen that were fleeing with 2 of my lightning clawed deathwing, the guard killed both of them and won the game!

There's many ways to do it; 1 die 90 times, 3 dice 30 times, 10 dice 9 times, 15 dice 6 times, 30 dice 3 times, or any combination you like. I personally have found the solution obvious as I encounter it often enough with my 32 Hormagaunt brood; get a bag and fill it with the number of dice. Then you dump the bag.

As for pure epic fail, I would have to say that went to my deployment of an Area Denial Node, I placed it in an aesthetically pleasing spot on the table only to realize during my first shooting phase that the only thing I had line of sight to was a Guard Command Squad just shy of 15' away. It then spent the entire game pasting Guardsmen one at a time at a few inches shy of maximum range.

As far as pure dice rolls go, I am torn between my 91 strong gag Marine army in a 1,500 point game against Tau where I failed 50 armor saves in a row or when I watched two Firewarriors on a neighboring table charge an unscathed Broodlord and kill it (without loss obviously).

Not to be rude but I dont believe you. I can believe out of 90 attack you may have failed to cause a casualty but I think your exagerating a bit. Probably had a bad roll to hit and then a poor roll to wound and they made all their saves.

Brother Alexos
13-12-2009, 15:39
This happened to me on my first game. It was my Blood Angels (using the SM Codex, I didn't know there was a BA codex yet.) against some Guard, and while my bikes tore up their right flank, my assault marines were losing to a very large squad of Guard. I rolled three ones on the attacks, and four ones on the wounds inflicted on them!

90 attacks failing to cause an unsaved wound (assuming 4+ to hit, 4+ to wound and 4+ save - i.e. 7/8 chance of not suffering a wound) is 7/8^90 = 6*10^-6 or 0.0006% or 1 in 166,666. Crazy, but possible. Rolling 90 dice and not scoring a single 3+ is rather less probable, as noted already.

Actually, the chances of this happening become much higher if you use the old GW red, black, and white dice, or any other type of dice like that, since you are far more likely to roll 1's when using them.

I got a load of the light brown ones, and they work great.

My biggest fail, as a Gorger coming in from a table edge behind some of my Salamanders in a Fantasy game. Salamanders get 26 shots in on the Gorger. Only needed 6's to wound, and figured, I would have the Gorger down. Not only did I not kill the Gorger, I failed to roll a single 6, out of the 26 dice.

Lord Inquisitor
13-12-2009, 17:52
If you're interested in the exact odds for that, you had only a 65% chance of killing the gorger and a 1% chance of failing to wound it altogether.

The chance of rolling six dice and getting all sixes is one in 46656. Strange events do occur, no matter how improbable or rare.

Sadly, no I'm not. I rolled 15 dice 6 times and rolled 1's and 2's, each time. My Assault phase ended, game ended I lost because he controlled 1 objective to my zero.

I am glad to see that this thread is getting lots of responses.

And on the note of codex's I am not sure, what exactly he is using I assumed it was black Templar because he had a emperor's champion. I did not know, they did not get sternguard.

I finally figured out how my dice work. I have epic fails one weekend and epic wins the other. Last weekend, I was doing a 1750 each 4 player battle. It was Necrons and my Eldar (yeah, I know. Random.) vs White Scars and random marines. Assault marines jumped out of a landraider, dual assaulted my guardian squad and a group of warriors next to me. The assault marines failed to kill any guardians, and the guardians killed 2 termies. The Necrons then lost two for tied combat, and next turn the guardians killed 2 more termies and the necrons got the last. No casualties for the guardians or necrons.

Yet this weekend, I fortune up a bike squad. The warlock lands on a piece of difficult terrain, rolls a one. Then he rolls ANOTHER one for his invul save. I use fortune, and a THIRD one.

18 Termagaunts on the charge against a slaaneshi daemon prince that I wanted to tar pit.. Thought I would at least take a wound before my flyrant could swoop in and eat him/her/whatever

54 attacks, 5 hit, no wounds.... I mean come on... Then I realise I am half an inch outside synapse... :wtf:

Epic fail....

One guy I played against had a particularly bad day. In the first instance, my marines tabled his guard in four turns. Ok, so that was pretty unlucky. So we switched sides.

I tabled him turn two without so much as a single guardsman as a casualty, using his own army. This involved two deep-striking units having mishaps and being destroyed, and the LRMBT slotting a battlecanon round through a bunker window at extreme range and killing an entire 10-man tactical squad which rolled only 1s and 2s.

Pretty epic fail.

Its not as rare as you think. My stealers have hit with 24-27 attacks out of 27 many times, and have also fairly often gotten no rends, or maybe 1 or 2 rends at most.

Of course it evens out in the end. After I lose some of the unit and start rolling maybe 8 dice I start wracking up the rends like there's no tomorrow. :wtf:

I once assaulted a 5 man stealers unit that had extended carapace with 8 stealers with feeder tendrils. My feeder tendrils stealers got no rends and killed 3 guys. The 5 EC stealers got 5 rends and I lost combat. It was a bit of a WTF moment, and sadly not really that rare of a situation with my dice. I really need to get better dice....

played against chaos space marines a week ago. His unit of 5 termies with some HQ choice deep strike in, then get charged by my 2 remaining killa kans. He goes first and does nothing, I kill 3 termies in return, win by 3 and he rolls 3 ones and the last 2 die leaving his hq to get pounded next phase as it can't even glance the Kans

My Hive Tyrant was contesting an objective after wiping out a scout squad on it, no worries I thought only 2 marines left on it and no sergeant left in the squad and the Tyrant was at full 4 wounds. Those 2 marines rapid fired my Tyrant with their bolters and killed it, tying the game.

gotta love epic fails - especially when it happens to the other guy. Three examples:
1. My Rhino got assaulted by daemonettes of slaanesh. 40 attacks with rending - not a single one even glanced the armor.

2. On the last turn of a tournament, Tank Shocked a pariah with a land raider. he gave ground then I killed the pariah with the heavy bolter and popped his monolith with one of its lascannons to tie the game.

3. Rhino rushed 2 land raiders through a line of orcs to contest his objective FTW!!! gotta say too - I love GKs - they went through the flank of his line like a buzzsaw. I got close enough to his objective with the land raiders that I didn't have to kill his lootas to consolidate onto the objective with the GKs.

Actually in that last game there was a funny time too - he waaghed to get closer to my LRs and pop them with his powerklaws, but when he rolled for fleet - ones and twos. I responded by disembarking my GKs and assault marines and tore his orcs apart.

Hmm, I think my biggest fails are in Fantasy. (a recent example: I was using Chaos Warriors, some disposable Warhounds got destroyed, which caused panic in another Warhound unit near, who ran through my Chaos Knights + BSB who failed their Ld8 re-rolled panic check and ran back, then failed to rally next turn and ran off the board).

But in 40k, I was playing a sort of campaign which gave me a Dark Eldar raider filled with Incubi, Archon with all the bells and whistles, but it had to enter play via deep-strike.

Put it in quite a clear area, scatters 12" to the only terrain near (impassable rock), mishaps and is completely destroyed.

Because it was a KP mission, I handed over 3KP in one go, converting a 1 or 2KP victory into a 2 or 1KP loss.

14-12-2009, 13:55
This is the opposite of a fail, since I benefitted, but my friend used First Rank Fire on a platoon squad, which was shooting at one of my veteran squads. That was thirty shots, but he failed to cause a single wound.

noobzilla
14-12-2009, 14:38
In the 3.5 Guard codex, I had camoleoline attached to some troops behind cover for a 3+ cover save. The squad took 7 wounds, promptly missed EVERY save, and then fleed off the objective and subsequently the board.

Great job! :D

14-12-2009, 14:49
In the recent local GT, I got 5 flamer hits on an IG SWS which I HAD to eliminate, rolled 5 dice and got all 1's..the end result was that I lost since if only I brought that squad down to half strength then that quarter would have been mine instead of contested...

I thought that was bad, but in the same tourney a friend of mine who was playing sisters failed 6 consecutive acts of faith by rolling over 10 each time..go figure...I guess the gals didn't pray hard enough....

druchii
14-12-2009, 17:44
I've had a few moments like this..and so have my opponents.

One was my Unholy Mighted DP sitting in combat with a stationary land raider for 10 combat rounds. Auto hitting, with 4 s6+2d6 armor pen attacks.

Yeah. All I could do was keep it stationary on top of an objective.

A friend of mine threw his entire guard(2000pts) worth of shooting, for three rounds, into my plague bearers who were gone to ground in cover. He didn't kill a single one. Gogo gadget 3+ cover, 4+ FNP.

During my last tournament I had a single screamer of tzeentch make sixteen consecutive 4++ saves against two fire dragons, a banshee exarch, a wraithlord, and six guardians.

On the other side of the table an avatar punched my LOC in the face four times, and I failed four 3++ saves.

Weird how that works.

I've had a Vanquisher bounce off the same Marine dreadnaught three times in a row. Hit every time, which is unlikely to begin with, then with 8+2D6, managed to roll 11 or less three times in a row. Old codex, and I'd lost the battle by this point, but the gunner was going to stop loading paint rounds, and kill that thing! Or not...

I forgot to mention the fact that my SM dreadnought is a walking fail - or not as the case normally is! -

Almost every game he gets immobilised and looses both arms!!! Although it is rare that he actually dies as by that point he's just scenery.

I have lots of fails
In 4th edition i was playing a 1000 point game against SW (back in their 3rd edition days) his whole army shot at ONE destroyer, can't remember how many wounds but it was the very last thing in his army that killed it, and if lascannons didn't have ap2 it would of survived that too

(4th edition again) Turn one 8 scarabs with disruption field get into close combat with BT land raider crusader, do nothing, then fricken hurricane bolter wipes them all out

in 5th edition my monolith gets stunned turn one, blown up turn 2 killing several warriors

An epic win in my dads army there is only 4 weapons he has capable of damaging the monolith, a servitor mounted multi melta, a space marine melta, and two missle launchers he never gets much luck with

Another fail was a little kid at my gaming club saying "you got porned" (think he was trying to say you got pwned) :)

Lord gets wiped out by death company, lots of warriors in semi circle 6 inches away, hello mr 60 shots...

2 warriors cut off from rest of army surviving against 8 DA in shooting phase, next turn killing a termi in the shooting phase, shot at some more, getting assaulted by termis, with power fist, surviving some more, then game end. they diddn't even take a wound :D

I tried corner camping with some warriors, and they were tanked shocked off the board (yes i was a n00b back then)

my biggest, fantasy game, my tomb kings archers vs a wood elf large treeman dude with 1 wound left after hit with a catapult first turn. Over the course of 4 turns i fired 20 shots twice each turn (magic). 160 shots, hitting on 5's, wounding on 6's, he had a (i think) 6+ ward save(don't remember even wounding him don't think he had to take any wards). Out of all the shots i still didn't take off his last wound.

A couple of years ago I took my Tyranid army along to a local GW store for a mini tournament they were running. This was with 4th ed rules when rending was good and I had loads of Genestealers in my army, making it a monster close-combat force - back at the club I used to go to I'd quite happliy eat all-comers, sneaking up through woods or between buildings and jumping out on the enemy, any enemy! I was very confident about this tournament :evilgrin:

Then I got there and saw the terrain on the tables - or lack thereof. Each table had one, maybe two, small buildings in the middle, and that was all :eek: It was clearly set up for beginner SM armies that just line up and shoot.

Game one, turn one: I went first and tried to get up and assault the enemy (Orks), but didn't quite reach. My opponent opened fire with his entire army and nearly wiped me out. A couple of turns later I only had my 'indestructable' Carnifex left - hiding behind a shed - and I hadn't touched an enemy model! Game two, turn one: I couldn't reach the enemy (Necrons) to assault in my turn, in his turn my opponent opened fire with his entire army... and game three (Necrons again), well, guess what? :skull: Sure, I could have ran the other way and hugged the table edge, but I had to at least try to engage the enemy.

In the end I came last in the tournament, my ego having taken a bit of a battering :cries:

(It's okay though, I took it out on the guys back at the club the following week :mad:)

I've had times when I've attacked with a interrogator chaplain and 10 veterans and missed with all attacks even after rerolls, yet in others I've been lucky enough to score wounding hits with almost every attack. it seems to balance out in some way.

Tonight at my gaming group we placed 1 thing down to karma. Playing Broken Alliance and the Tau and other DA player decided to gang up on me for a turn, the DA held their end of the bargain but the Tau shot up his ally (?) for that turn. UIn the last turn of the game 4 tactical DA were contesting his home objective and only managed to score 2 wounds. That we called karma for his underhanded nature (heh).

Back on topic though, I played a Doublewing force the other week and did terribly, I rolled mostly 1's for saving throws for the entire game and got wiped out, not a model left standing at the end of turn 4. Again to balance, I managed to make every refractor field roll for 1 game with a lone Justicar being assulted by more Bloodletters than you can shake a Bloodthirster at, I think the end tally was about 15 bloodletters sliced and diced as I kept rolling 5's and 6's for every dice roll (opponent thought they were loaded and used them himself and rolled very badly).

Likewise with bad rolls though, I am awful when rolling melta weapons, I always roll 1's to hit, lol.

All the stories of "epic fails" should make us feel better....and just convinces me that 40k and whfb can be a game of extremes...mathhammer be damned!

Ok, well regarding the OP thats karma for managing to get all 30 models within 2" to be able to strike :D

Sadly, I have to agree with it. I'm relatively famous in my gaming group as someone who either fails horribly. Or succeeds in such a way as to screw up whatever plan we happen to have.

I have some epic fail stories:D

Last Game I played with my Dark Angels vs a mates newly invested Ork horde - Lone SM Commander in termie armour sucessfully survives charge of a Warboss and maxed out ret of nobs, he managed to save over 20 rolls, and many who where on his 5+ inv! Survived with 1 wound remaining. I was hoping to see some form of payback, but allas, he was to mortally wounded to be able to do anything but "miss miss miss " with his twin lightning claws :/


Another fun moment was my mates flyrant, packed with Devourers, dropping down and just about to open fire on my Tau Stealth suits i say "hey.. did you roll for night fight range??" ... cants see ****, and gets burst to a pulp the following round. Needless to say, my mate was not very found of it... not very found at all!

And best time was when my Ork combat Squig (from last ed, orks) successfully bit the balls of a Fex, after my failboss didn't do squat. He thought he had the game when I said "hey.. I need to roll for my squig as well", scoring not one but TWO wounds on the hulking beast (not only me rolling high on my to hit, but allso rolling two 6s on my to wound, finishing by him rolling a double 1 on his save... Thats like... 0.04% chance in hell of happening, but I guess thats the joy of playing Warhammer:D)
